Those two beautiful creatures and I had a "moment" in the Burren of western Ireland. Reminded me of those who don't have a mother to wish a happy mother's day (and the Paul Simon tune).
Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

Three is the first number to which the meaning “all” was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end. The power of three is universal and is the tripartite nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul, spirit and insomnia.
All my life I have woken up in the middle of the night at integrals of “three”.

With a hazy surge of creativity, I baked a series of three white piano keys from an abandoned grand piano at 450 degrees and married them to a vintage wooden plank found in a New England mill and added a lone vein of color to complete the assemblage.
“I am a tiny seashell
that has secretly drifted ashore
and carries the sound of the ocean
surging through its body.”

Outtake from a shoot with the talented Amanda Salami. Traditionally, pointing at the sky is a gesture of affirmation of faith, perhaps on many levels but in this instance, I just wanted to see her cool tat and see her laugh.
I visited my sculpture piece, “Silently and Light of Foot” today at @plymouth_center_for_the_arts. Rumor has it that the sculpture may be in an upcoming show featuring work that can be touched by the seeing impaired.
Such are the ways of things with dance and light. A leap of faith, weightlessly, light on one’s feet . . . into the unknown.
“Silently and Light of Foot is a sculptural piece created from used but beloved pointe shoes from the Island Moving Company ballet dancers of Newport, RI and a pre-civil war era shoe rack from one of Natick’s oldest mills. The marriage of the two beautiful objects reflect a subtle story of ‘light of foot’ and reminder that we once weren’t and then, were and at some point, won’t be.
